Biarritz Aquarium

IMMERSION Underwater

Discover the Biarritz aquarium during your camping holiday

Right in the heart of Biarritz, facing the Virgin Rock, discover the aquarium, one of the region’s most emblematic institutions.

Founded in the 1880s by the Marquis Alexandre Guillaume Léopold de Folin, the Biarritz aquarium was a pioneer in its field, offering the public privileged access to explore the depths of the Bay of Biscay.

Today, the aquarium houses an impressive collection of almost 530 species in some forty aquariums. Watch the sharks, meet the turtles or discover the fascinating mangroves during an entertaining afternoon.

Dive into the waters of the Bay of Biscay or explore the Indo-Pacific Ocean, where you can admire the majestic ballet of jellyfish.

When you buy your admission ticket, you’re helping to preserve marine species. The Biarritz Aquarium is actively involved in saving seals and sea turtles, providing them with attentive care before releasing them back into their natural habitat.
